A inveja deixa-nos verdes. Depois de ler este post confudiram-me com o Relvas.

A inveja não é bonita, mas alivia...

Para quando o relato mais pormenorizado de todas essas experiências?

Boa semana!

Fique antes azul-e-vermelho...

Planeei esta estadia ao longo de 7 meses, tinha de ser bem recheada. Poupei na viagem e no hotel para poder dar-me outros luxos... e valeu!

O Relvas ? quem é ? :)
